A Stuga On the Cusp of the Orust Riviera, tucked away next to a hobbit hole in the woods.

The Willows in Winter - William Horwood, Patrick Benson Re-read details: BBC7 29th November 2010-------The further adventures of Toad, Ratty, Badger and Mole. Not the first time, and probably not the last, where another author tries to carry on with a character or theme already well-loved. I think of James Bond, Sherlock Holmes, Lord Peter Wimsey as examples.It very rarely works does it, not in terms of artistic prowess. Of course sales are high as all us 'holics are curious, however high sales do not indicate reader satisfaction.So taking this as a one-off unconnected read, it was beautifully iPenned with some truly lovely descriptions however it didn't move my rowboat.
